Geraldine Tales and Trails

We offer a unique experience in Geraldine. Walks are done at your pace, your time and adapted to your ability. I am passionate about the area and want to enhance your impression and knowledge of Geraldine. Please join me. You are welcome.




Geraldine is full of it ......... history.

Why choose me to guide you? Because I have New Zealand history in my blood. My GGG Grandfather was the first appointed Governor. I am University trained in Anthropology.

Our 2-3 hour walking trip covers both the business area and Talbot Forest. We talk about a lot. ........ Maori history and culture, colonial history, flora, fauna and architecture and past identities.
We have coffee together (at my expense).

Perhaps hiking is your passion - one day or overnight trips can be arranged to suit you.

Or you may like a self drive guided tour to Peel Forest, Mesopotamia, Lord of The Rings country or closer to Geraldine. Let me join you with on the spot knowledge and a ready made lunch.
